Project for the year

I have been thinking of starting a project for myself this year. Its a common project many photographers are keen to do, to shoot and blog about a photo everyday. I have been shooting almost everyday since day 1 in 2012, but pretty busy and lazy to blog everyday. I did some blogging since the beginning of the year, but wasn’t discipline and consistent. So today, the last day of January 2012, I have decided to blog on weekly basis. Its not going to be just about my client, but mainly about me,  my family and my life. For January 2012, my kids been my main subject. I have blogged the 4 weeks in January, but had different names to it. Need to rename it to be consistent.

Now, I wonder what I have in mind for February 2012.

Week 4/52

This year’s Chinese New Year was a blessed one. Attended wonderful church convention at Seremban and it was truly a blessed one. The convention was held for 4 days starting on Saturday until the second day of chinese new year. I would say, our holiday was truly spend wisely in God’s presence.

Every post will not be complete without at least a photo. I’ve added two here, picture of my kiddo’s taken last Friday (20.01.2012). These pictures were taken at the pool side at our condominium. After taking some shots, we decided to head to 1 Utama for window shopping. We just got a pair of jeans for Marcus. But the three of us had fun, going on rides, walking around, having yogurt and early dinner.

Week 3/52

So fast, Marcus is 5 years old. His birthday fell on Sunday. Thus, we decided to cut his birthday cake after the church. He was so restless while we were at church as it was his birthday and he haven’t cut his cake. The actual reason wasn’t the cake. It was the fire engine on the cake. His request for this year’ birthday is to have a fire engine and traffic light on his cake. Thanks to Claudine for making such a beautiful cake and it was very delicious too. A suji cake with fire engine, house on fire, traffic light and road.

For dinner, we took him out to his favourite restaurant, TGIF, Plaza Damas. There he had molten choc brownie. And on Monday, I got him another cake from Claudine for his classmates. He didn’t know about the cake, which we brought for him during his break time. He was excited to have another cake in school and to share with his friends. Blessed Birthday My Handsome Boy.

My 3 year old

Been out today, since morning till evening. Went out to so many places, and we came back home very tired. I put my kids to sleep and was reading an article on shooting a newborn baby. Just after reading the article and about to take a nap myself, I looked up at my daughter’s bed and she was sleeping. She looked so calm unlike herself when she’s wide awake. I quickly grabbed my camera and took some shoots of her while’s she’s sleeping.

Week 1/52

Today the school has officially started the first term for year 2012. Some kids would have gone for orientation yesterday, and some starts today. I believe all parents feels that they just held their newborn baby in their arm. Holding them close to their heart and smelling the sweet smell of the newborn. And now the little one is going to school.

Last year, my son Marcus attended Krista Pusat Bandar Putra Permai, Seri Kembangan. Previously we used to send him to Gymboree, thus he didn’t have any trouble when we left him at Kindergarten on day one. Asha, my second one, never attended any kindy before. Being with me all the time since birth.

Today, both them are going to two different school. Marcus is starting his formal studies while Asha is starting her kindergarden. Marcus didn’t feel odd being in a school, but prefers his parents to be around. Asha was able to mix with her peers pretty well. When she started to play, she immediately said ‘Amma, you go back huh’, asking me to leave her at kindy. We left her with happy heart that she is confident and having fun at the kindergarten. Hope all the kids will have wonderful and happy memories during their school days.

Jenny Sun Photography Workshop Kuala Lumpur, 2011

Blessed New Year everyone. So sorry for being quiet for very long time. Been very busy with work and family matters for the past few months. So many things took place, starting with moving to a new home, my sister’s wedding, etc. I remember blogging about the workshop that I attended in August 2011, but I never published it because the internet was down the night when I wrote the blog. Thus, I saved it as draft and never blogged for few months. I will try to blog often this year, especially on events that I shoot last year.



I always admire and get inspired whenever I read Jenny Sun’s blog on her latest updates of her shooting. I am truly blessed when I got an opportunity to attend Jenny Sun’s workshop in Kuala Lumpur this August. When I read about her workshop in Singapore beginning of this year, I was hoping that she could organize a workshop here. So when she announced on her blog about the workshop here, I quickly enrolled for the workshop. It was 3 days intensive workshop with outdoor photography session and to understand what we really want to achieve in this field, wedding photography.

Below are some of the pictures taken during our outdoor session on
